Exactly. The document editing side of this is really not very
complicated. We don't need a heavy enterprise level CMS for that. I very
much like the proposal on that wiki page. And I see that already some
work has been done.

I have a little time on my hands to actually implement some of the
things mentioned. My only question is what are others possibly doing in
parallel setting up some other system. I'd rather not duplicate efforts
when it turns out someone has set up Daisy somewhere by the end of this
week. If someone's that close to a working system I say we go with that.
